A new smartphone dating game turns the Village Blend into
a hookup hot spot, until one dark night, when a gunshot
leaves a dead body behind and the landmark coffeehouse
becomes the center of a whole new scene--a crime scene.
As Village Blend manager Clare Cosi attempts to finalize
a date for her wedding, her ex-husband becomes addicted
to making dates through smartphone swipes. Clare has
mixed feelings about these quickie matchups happening in
her coffeehouse. Even her octogenarian employer is
selecting suitors by screenshot! But business is booming,
and Clare works hard to keep the espresso shots flowing.
Then one dark night, another kind of shot leaves a dead
body for her to find.
The corpse is a successful entrepreneur who became
notorious for his "hit it and quit it" behavior: prowling
for women on dating apps, then devastating his conquests
with morning-after insults. Though the NYPD quickly
arrests one of his recent victims, Clare finds reason to
believe she's been framed.
Now, with the help of her ex and crew of quirky baristas,
Clare starts "swiping" through suspects in her own shop,
determined to find the real killer before another shot
Includes a bang-up menu of tempting recipes.
